Arrowhead Fall -- 2021 23 Sep 2021 21:40 #114779

I will run a 50/50 drawing at Arrowhead to benefit this site.
50% of ticket sales goes the the winning ticket holder.
50% of ticket sales goes to Steve to help offset maintenance fees for this site.
Must be present to win? Drawing Friday night at dinner.
$1 for 1 ticket
$5 for 6 tickets
$10 for 13 tickets
See Mike for tickets


We collected $444. with the 50/50
Winner of 50/50 was Greg C. 
Greg donated back $100. for Steve.
I have sent $322. to Steve via Paypal for maintenance of this site today.
I enjoyed doing this and many felt good doing it too!

Steve was surprised! And responded 

"I really appreciate all you guys do with your help in funding the website."
Steve

Jennings. I caught a safety barrier protecting the pump at a gas station in Scranton PA. Those barriers do what they are supposed to do. Lapse of concentration. Was paying attention to something else. Arrowhead battle scar.

Hey scoot,
If you decide to try to push that out please start a restoration thread and show us how it went so we can add to the group knowledge about repairing these boats.
By the way we fixed Charlie’s oops, an impeller sudden death, thankfully OMC put a water temp buzzer on these motors, they are really not even very hot when they buzz!


Scoot, what did you hit?

Marc. I was thinking about your part of the story but I wasn’t sure If your kids might see it . heh,heh.
Great hanging around with you too. Glad you dropped by for dinner with Mike. I’ve got to tell you….Mike is the noisiest neighbor I ever had.




 
Thanks Scoot, its a family site. LOL. I let my guard down that night and paid for it the next day. I don't think that will happen again, I forgot how bad Hangovers were.

Now I have to say that the highlight of the week was Charlie asking me to give him a hug. I’m thinking it was a gesture of acceptance and friendship. I’m not the long blond hair, blue eyes, ruby red lipstick, hour glass figure type, so I’m taking it as a gesture of friendship. When I put my arms around him……….well let’s just agree that Charlie( sir Charles from here on in)is a big boy. Solid as an oak. Sort of like this.  Great to hang around with you sir Charles. See you in March in Florida.
